This retreat offers you the opportunity to deepen your understanding of your body and your relationship with a changing life from two different yet complementary perspectives: the medical and the energetic.
As women we start to change in the run-up and during our menopausal years and it is important to us that we age in a physically healthy and emotionally balanced way. Though I am at the beginning stages of this unfolding, I work with many women of all ages and I love the raw wildness of change and the discerning quality that is refining within woman as the body starts to change and re-direct its inner focus.
It is time for us to know and say yes to what we need, we have to take life’s nourishment, it is time to listen to our inner knowing as we can no longer avoid its voice! I will be bringing to this retreat what I have found to work for a changing sexual appetite, how to stay vital in our sensual energy, set goals, take rest and play.
